A new star has lit the show jumping ring with a bright radiance: Couleur Rubin and Ludger Beerbaum are the dream pair of the International Jumping Sport. Never before was Germany’s “Number 1” in the jumping saddle so convinced from a horse other than Couleur Rubin. So convinced that Madeleine Winter-Schulze secured the sporting rights of this stallion for Ludger Beerbaum. Numerous successes in the ring like the win in Spain’s Vigo and in the team for the Riders Tour 2004 underlines the high potential . Just like the German Championships in Verden 2005, Ludger Beebaum and the stallion placed themselves in the standings at the World Cup Final in Las Vegas 2005.
Couleur Rubin was in 2001 under Joachim Heyer Vice-Champion for German five-year-old jumping horses. He was also winner of a series of young jumping horse classes at Novice, Elementary and Medium levels. He was the jumping wonder of the Oldenburg approvals in 1998 and found his way to the premium ring. Capable, skilled, correct and careful is the only way to describe this magnificent stallion. The judges also saw this in Warendorf at the National Young Horse Championships in 2001 and 2002 where in both years he had the highest notes for his age group. The press commended him with great acclaim in the headlines of magazines. It is no wonder that his basic gaits are of the finest quality. His ground covering walk is especially great.
The sire, Cordalmé Z, was internationally successful with Gilbert Böckman as Nation Prize Stallion and became known as a first class jumping horse producer early in his breeding career. In 2000, two offspring from Cordalmé Z were Olympic competitors in Sydney. A great number of offspring from this chestnut have also been competing internationally.
The dam, State Premium and Elite mare, Grannuschka, is also the dam of Conterno Grande, Reserve Champion of the Oldenburg approvals. Couleur Rubin is her second Premium stallion son.
The first offspring of Couleur Rubin stand out because of their high degree of elasticity and sporty look which contributes to their talent in the jumping ring. Many offspring have already won in Young Jumping Horse classes at Novice and Elementary levels. In the 2004 FN Breeding Rankings Couleur Rubin held the sixth place.
